You can share the gospel where ever you are at the time. Five weeks ago I was at church. A women got up crying during the service. She went into the bathroom and I followed her to see if I could help. She told me that she was an alcoholic and was trying to quit but she had drank the night before. I told her that I had good news for her that could help her but I needed to show her the bad news first. I asked her if she had ever lied or stolen. She said yes. I told her that hate is considered murder and lust is adultery. I explained that God will judge however he is also merciful. Jesus died on the cross to pay her fine. She needed to repent and trust that Jesus died on that cross and then she would go to heaven. I explained that if she repented of her sin then all the things she did before are forgiven by God and so she should forgive herself. If the God of the universe forgave her then she should too. Then I gave her what I knew about quitting something addictive. I prayed for her. She showed up at the Christmas Eve service to see me. She let me know that she was sober for the last five weeks and it was because of that moment. Pray for Diane. I cried after she told me. This is the second alcoholic that has gone clean after hearing the gospel via my ministry.
This young lady did not take a tract from me but was very rude. Then she walked away and felt her pockets realizing something was missing. She turned around and walked the way she came. Then a set of students walked up to me and asked if I was the one handing out the tracts. I said yes and they gave me a phone that someone had lost. I knew whose phone it was immediately. She walked by again a minute later and I stopped her and asked if it was hers. She said yes and thanked me and then I offered her a tract again and she took it this time.
Last month I trained up the youth to go and share the gospel and this month I got to take them out witnessing. We handed out tracts at the Creche and in Market Square. There were thousands of people down there walking around. It was a wonderful afternoon of handing out tracts and talking to people. It is always so exciting when Christians are bold for the gospel.
